MY JOURNEY TO A BETTER LIFE!!!

I'm 37 a single mum of 3 (plus 1 in 'heaven')
I have been struggling with my weight for a while,always trying one diet or another, looking for that quick fix,miracle pill ( aren't we all? )
I also suffer from anxiety and depression,arthritis,and a rae condition known as P.O.T.S (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome),which in simple terms means I can pass out anytime,anywhere and be unconcious from 5 mins upto aprox 4 hours at a time.
There are other symptoms such as ...

There are other symptoms such as tiredness,muscle aches etc but thats the main one
However i am determined not to let these health issues get the better of me and this is also another reason for me to get my weight down and start eating healthier.

I am not dieting anymore,I am simply eating healthier and making better lifestyle choices.

I have actually been on and off spark people several times in the past ,but had never bothered to really track my foods or fitness consistently or set up a blog page,this is the first blog I have ever actually done at all,so forgive me if it does get a little boring at times.......
It was actually down to my sister that my mindset changed as she posted a rather awful tipsy picture of me after a celebration on facebook,I saw it and promptly burst into tears.
I could not believe I had let myself get to that state,I looked so frumpy,fat, lumps in all the wrong places and well just felt disgusted with myself,so here i am again and this time i am doing this page and sharing the UPS & DOWN'S,GOOD & BAD with you all.

I'm now going to the gym on a regular basis and SHOCK HORROR enjoy it,in fact I now get annoyed with myself if I can't go for whatever reason.....WEIRD!I

(updated 01/10/2014; Unfortunately it has now become too painful for me to continue with the gym,I am now doing regular walking and little bits on the wii when I am able)

I'm also dairy free so working the diet side of things out has been tricky,but I'm getting there.
I'm finding that i am actually reducing my cravings for the chocolate now which although dairy free and really you do not want to know the effects it has on me...I confess I was still trying to sneak the odd bits of chocolate into my diet with severe consquences each time,which yeah I know was not good for my health whatsoever.

I now go for fruit,jellies or something else sweet, DAIRY FREE and not so many calories/fat/etc and am feeling so much better for it.....I have now also learnt how to make a dairy free chocolate mousse (still have to get that choco fix sometimes) and even a 'cheesecake'

I get weighed on a monthly basis, I have alot of weight to lose but hope for some support in that area. (people cheering me on etc)
I find tracking my food and fitness on here really helps.
My ultimate goal is to get to 9 stone again and wear nice smaller size clothes,feel good in myself and of course look good and get my confidence back.......

Wish me luck as I go forth on my journey towards a better life!
